How to Choose your Pickleball


Which pickleball should you play with? Let us help! At ONIX Pickleball, we offer multiple pickleballs for different players’ needs. In the following blog post, we break down the difference between our indoor and outdoor balls and how to decide between the ONIX DURA Fast-40, the ONIX Fuse G2, and the ONIX Pure 2 ball. 

Indoor or Outdoor Pickleballs

Indoor pickleballs are designed to be played with indoors on gym surfaces and other indoor facilities. Indoor pickleballs play a bit slower and don’t skid as much. Designed to play outdoors in the natural elements, outdoor pickleballs have smaller hole patterns making these pickleballs less affected by wind and play much faster.

DURA Fast-40

The ball of choice for professional players and top tournament events, the DURA Fast-40 features a patented hole pattern that makes it more challenging than any other ball on the market, a key aspect of why pro players love it. The ball plays unique each time with its flight and bounce due to a patented hole pattern. The DURA Fast-40 is USA Pickleball (formerly USAPA) approved and is the official ball of the PPA Tour, APP Tour, and Pickleball Canada tournaments. 

ONIX Fuse G2 

The ONIX Fuse G2 pickleball is ideal for recreational players and pickleball clubs that want more durability out of a pickleball but aren’t quite up to the 4.0 playing level and above to use the DURA Fast-40 ball. The Fuse G2 is an outdoor pickleball that is USA Pickleball (formerly USAPA) approved.

ONIX Pure 2

The ONIX Pure 2 pickleball is the most durable ball that is the longest lasting pickleball on the market. The added durability makes the ball bouncier out of the package and requires a game to bring to regulation bounce height. This outdoor ball is great for beginners and recreational players that love long rallies.
